Hi hope you all had a spooky and safe Halloween.
We had a little tea party at mums Friday night. We all dressed up and decorated the house, the kids carved pumpkins.....

well the grown ups did most of!!!!
Mum made a cake (any excuse mum!!!) but really cool cake!!! we called him Frank. My mum and aunt have a spider friend they call Fred. We couldn't call this spider Fred as we were going to cut him up and eat!!!In the days of snail mail the letters and envelopes were decorated with Fred the spider, when they wrote to each other. Now when I send something to my aunt in Scotland I decorate the envelope and always say hi to the postmen as she has the same ones and they are friendly!!! so here is Frank....

There are no photos (thankfully) of mum, sis, and I dressed up but Terry.....

...even managed to scare the dogs with this outfit!!!lol!!!
And the kids....

....Scared!!!! Alix refused to put anything on bless him but he did run around with a mask trying to scare us all!!! He loved the trick or treating, he said thank-you every time and only took one sweet when offered. He loved putting them in his little bucket. You may notice there is an extra child in the photo, this is one of Mikael's friends, Rhys. I look after him for my friend when she has to work. His mum joined us later for tea.
Mum made a fab beef stew with dumplings and apple and blackberry crumble for pud...yummy!!! (thanks mum xxxx!!)I will have to walk 10 miles to lose!!!!
I went to J-land on Friday and it has gone. So sad.... I will miss journals, but I am glad that so many came over to blogger.

take care

Thanks for sharing the nice Halloween you had. I had never really given much thought about whether other countries celebrated and about trick or treating. Thanks for the enlightenment :o)

Love the cake, cheers for mum.
